ImmunoKinoko contains pure Active Hexose Correlated Compound (AHCC) – one of the worlds most researched natural immunomodulators – developed in Japan and used in over 1000 clinics worldwide.
Active Hexose Correlated Compound is a patented extract of hybridized medicinal mushrooms that is uniquely rich in alpha-glucans. AHCC has very high absorption due to its low molecular weight of only 5, 000 Daltons.
AHCC is backed by over 25 clinical and in vivo studies published in PubMed-listed peer-reviewed journals and by more than 50 human studies documented in papers and case reports. Research on AHCC has been conducted at highly reputable medical institutions such as the Yale Medical School, Harvard-affiliated Faulkner hospital and U.T.M.D. Anderson. Several trials – including a 269 subject study published in the Journal of Hepatology, a double-blind placebo-controlled published trial on healthy adults, and a Yale Medical School study on healthy elderly patients – have shown that AHCC can increase the number or activity of:
* Natural Killer (NK) cells, the bodys first line of defense
* Dendritic cells, which intiate adaptive immune response
* T-cells, which provide backup to NK cells
* Macrophages, which clean up cellular debris
* Cytokines, which activate the immune system
